The ECB helped to sooth stock market yesterday as it dismissed talk of tapering its bond-buying programme.

Speaking at a press conference which followed yesterday’s rate decision, ECB president, Christine Lagarde said: “We still have a long way to go for the economy to become sustainable…we have to cross the bridge of the pandemic and be able to walk on solid ground.”

The central bank kept its deposit rate at -0.5% and reiterated its stance that its €1.85tn bond-buying programme could expanded depending on the rate of the Eurozone’s economic recovery.
